Farm Visits 2017/18

 

  

Public Health is pleased to launch the new classroom at Frogmary Green Farm in South Petherton

 

 

 

The Schools' Health Education Den (SHED) will offer a base for school farm visits, teacher training and a countywide resource for targeted groups to use for wellbeing activities linked to growing, cooking and the natural environment.

The classroom is part of a wider Field to Fork project that has been developed in partnership with Somerset County Council, the Somerset Play Forum and Sky College to wider children and young people's learning and understanding of food, farming, play and the outdoors.

 

Universal Offer to Schools

 

Dates for academic year 2017/ 2018 have now been published for Guided School Visits. Interested schools who would like to bring children and young people to the farm can book here:http://www.cypsomersethealth.org/?ks=1&page=f2f_gfv_book 

 

 

Targeted Groups

 

The SHED will be a resource for Somerset staff that work with children and families. Staff that have undergone a full induction programme training will be able to book single or multiple visits, up to three a term, to use the hub independently with small groups of children and young people. Specific organisations and services will be invited to attend the induction training sessions during the autumn term. 

 

Training

 

Frogmary Green Farm will continue to develop and deliver a programme of training for schools and the wider CYP workforce using both the SHED and the Frogmary Green Farm conference space including Mental Health First Aid, Emotion Coaching, Tuning in Kids, the Sexual Health Training Programme.
